    I have been working at NextEra Energy, Inc. full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Company very strong on safety. I have seen the executives multiple times since I have been with the company. Lots of opportunity for growth and advancement. Troubleshooting and learning is highly encouraged.

    Cons

    Came into a site that had its entire team leave within 6 months for various reasons. There were not a lot of higher level techs to be able to learn from. Also, a lot of the procedures are incomplete or very vague and there are a lot of systems in turbines that have been modified by former techs with no indication of the workaround.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Getting more time to complete training would be a good thing. Otherwise I like the management style and you are very good at listening to what your techs are saying.

    Pros

    Previous leaders ensured your success. Rewarded well for hard and smart work. Engaged in community volunteerism. Good education programs for leaders.

    Cons

    Shareholder value is high; hardly any short term goals. Certain management created divides for self goals. Work-life balance has not improved and has worsened. Hardly able to take a vacation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Career paths and mentoring.

    Pros

    Matt Fuller is probably the best manager I've ever worked with in my (rather extensive) career.

    Cons

    The company has some political intrigue, and, like all large companies, there are some folks you'd just as soon not have to deal with, but that's true of just about anywhere, so it's not really something to hold against NextEra in particular.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you believe a project is important enough to highlight it to the rest of the company, it probably deserves an annual budget somewhat larger than $100k when it has a long list of unfinished and/or much-desired features, wouldn't you say?
